This exquisite home was originally built in 1996 and underwent major remodeling throughout 2012. The current owners have invested over $117,000 improving the home, over the last 2 years. Substantial improvements were made just prior to the current owners’ purchase, as well. The overall design aesthetic will transport you to sublime retreat; fitting for a relaxed, yet elegant Scottsdale lifestyle.
This home’s stunning, unique indoor and outdoor spaces may not be immediately realized from the street. But, once you get to the entry, you will start to notice that it’s not just an ordinary house. The entry features an artisan-crafted metal trellis with flowering jasmine. The front yard grass is maintained by the HOA. There are all new plantings, in front, with drip irrigation and full landscape lighting (all on auto timers). There is a generously sized 2 car garage with new insulated garage door, whisper-quiet opener and safety alert system.
The rear yard was fully renovated in 2012 to provide a superior outdoor experience; an opportunity to enjoy the AZ climate year-round. California Pools built a custom, all glass tile pool that is adorned with a gorgeous Mediterranean tile feature wall and offers remote-controlled pool fountains and LED lighting, thoughtfully-designed steps, sitting ledge, lounging Baja shelf (with enough room for four sun loungers and 2 shade umbrellas) and standing shelf in the deep end, integrated bullnose coping and high-efficiency variable speed pump. Stunning professionally designed landscaping adorns the poolside and gives the space a tropical resort ambiance with Shellock patio pavers underfoot, high-end synthetic grass and all new plantings, complete with professional irrigation and landscape lighting. The yard is surrounded by block fencing, which offers the ultimate in privacy. A cozy expanded covered patio offers shaded East-facing space.
You enter the home through a formal entry, which leads to a generous great room. Underfoot, all new upgraded tile flooring was professionally installed in 2012. A new Haiku solid bamboo ceiling fan with 10 speeds was just installed in the great room. The great room opens to the covered rear patio and the updated kitchen, creating an open floorplan.
The kitchen has been modernized with slab granite counters, high-end stainless steel appliances, new sink, new fixtures, new LED recessed lighting and professionally painted cabinets. The breakfast bar provides a casual dining area. The eat-in kitchen features a breakfast nook, as well. The refrigerator is available on a separate bill of sale ($3700 value).
All 4 bedrooms feature new carpeting, new paint, new ceiling fans and new custom wood shutters. The master suite is spacious and full of natural light. It features a walk-in closet and full private bathroom. Enjoy lavish expanses of travertine flooring, dual sinks, private water closet (with new Kohler toilet with soft close lid and new exhaust fan) and a custom tiled shower with beauty ledge/niches and a new Grohe thermostatic valve and showerhead. The French doors off the master bedroom provide a view of the secluded resort-style rear yard and allow you to walk right out to the sparkling pool.
The hall bathroom has been remodeled with new custom-tiled shower, slab granite counters, professionally painted vanity, new sink and fixtures, new Kohler toilet with soft-close lid and a new exhaust fan.
Mechanically, the home has had many updates, as well. A new tile roof was installed in 2014 and it comes with a fully transferable warranty. The home also received a new 2nd hot water line run from the water heater, to the back of the house, for instant hot water throughout the home. All new LED recessed lighting has been installed in the kitchen, great room, master and 4th bedroom. New soft water and reverse osmosis systems have been professionally installed. The cable TV wiring has been upgraded and run behind walls for the wall-mounted flat screen TVs (mounts convey, TVs available on separate bill of sale). The air conditioning system has been renewed with a new thermostat, new vents, new drip pan in the attic and a professional whole-house air balancing. New energy-efficient, front load washer and dryer convey with the sale. All windows feature new custom wood shutters.
With the home feeling very private and tranquil, it should be noted that the location is convenient to many Scottsdale destinations. Old town Scottsdale is only about 1.5 miles away. It’s a treat to live within walking distance to shopping centers with a Fresh & Easy grocery store (.6 miles) and a Starbucks (.5 miles). Looking for somewhere close to dine? The home is approximately .5 miles to hip restaurants such as Carlsbad Tavern, Totties Asian Fusion and Pig and Pickle. And, if you need anything for your new home, Lowes is about 1.2 miles away. You are within 2 miles of Scottsdale Fashion Square, the entertainment district of Scottsdale, Scottsdale Civic Center and Scottsdale Center For The Arts, the 14+ mile Scottsdale/Tempe greenbelt and more. Pima Elementary is .4 miles away. This home ranks as ‘somewhat walkable’ on walkscore.com, with a score of 51/100. The loop 101 is close by, too.
Everything, down to the tiniest details, oozes style. It is a rare opportunity that a treasured residence such as this comes to market, especially at an affordable price. To dwell here would be to live in a home that truly seeped in character and understated luxury.
